XPLORE: the new e-learning platform from Loctite

LOCTITE® has just launched XPLORE, a new e-learning platform that allows engineers access to the company’s  expertise in engineering adhesive technology, any time and anywhere

LOCTITE says  that although online support and tutorials are nothing new for its business, this fresh platform breaks new ground with e-learning content that is designed to be entertaining: it is delivered by what the company describes as “an endearing and funny cartoon character called LOC”.

LOCTITE XPLORE is completely free and is an evolving resource that puts LOCTITE’s 65+ years of combined scientific, technical and application knowledge - and the collective learning of its global assembly and maintenance experts - in industry’s hands. LOCTITE says that it is this depth of knowledge which differentiates the brand from others in the market.  Whether the challenge is to create more innovative product designs or to reduce unplanned plant downtime and improve efficiency, LOCTITE XPLORE can help engineers make informed decisions within their area of expertise.  

To give engineers a flavour of what is in store, the first topic is now ready to view; threaded fasteners, why do they fail?  Hosted by LOC, the seven-module programme covers every aspect of thread locking. LOCTITE XPLORE has been designed for use on mobile devices to ensure this rich resource is available in the field too. To discover more and for quick and easy registration, click here.
